Product Information

The world’s most prestigious laptop, enhanced.

They say that you can’t improve on perfection. That’s a nice thought, but with the new ZenBook 3 Deluxe we’ve proved them wrong by taking the amazing ZenBook 3 and making it even better. ZenBook 3 Deluxe achieves the almost-impossible, featuring a gorgeous 14-inch display in an elegant and compact chassis that’s no bigger than many 13-inch laptops. It’s an unrivaled combination of power and beauty, giving you the perfect balance between portability and productivity. Measuring just 12.9mm thin and weighing only 1.1kg, ZenBook 3 Deluxe has everything you need for superb on-the-go performance, including a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, up to a 1TB PCIe® SSD, two USB Type-C™ (USB-C) ports with Thunderbolt™ 3 for dual 4K UHD display supports, and a powerful quad-speaker audio system. ZenBook 3 Deluxe takes ZenBook 3 to the next level — for the ultimate prestige and performance.

Craftsmanship

Crafted to perfection

ZenBook 3 Deluxe has a very simple design philosophy: Never compromise. It’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with a beauty that reflects a painstaking attention to detail. The perfect curves of the all-aluminum chassis are carved from a single block of metal that then goes through a 40-step process to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish with its lustrous, silky sheen. A complex two-phase anodizing process is then used to create the elegant golden diamond-cut edges and unique golden ASUS lid logo. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite design that offers the perfect combination of beauty, mobility, performance and productivity.

Beauty

The 13-inch laptop with a 14-inch display

The chassis of ZenBook 3 Deluxe is the size of many 13-inch laptops — yet it features an extra-large 14-inch display. ZenBook 3 Deluxe is constructed from premium, aerospace-grade aluminum alloy. This grade of allow is 50% stronger than standard alloy, allowing the ZenBook 3 Deluxe to have an amazingly thin 12.9mm profile and weigh only 1.1kg. ASUS Zenbook 3 Deluxe features 0.55mm thick Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, which is the toughest cover glass yet while delivering the damage resistance Gorilla Glass is known for.

Screen

NanoEdge Display: ultra-narrow bezel

Fitting a 14-inch Full HD display into a 13-inch frame wasn’t easy. One of the keys to achieving this for ZenBook 3 Deluxe is its NanoEdge ultra-narrow display bezel, which is just 7.46mm wide. This allows the biggest possible screen area, giving ZenBook 3 Deluxe a class-leading 84% screen-to-body ratio. Wide-viewing-angle technology ensures undistorted color and great contrast at viewing angles up to 178°, for easy collaboration and screen sharing. This superb display with its realistic color reproduction and crisp detail must be seen to be believed.

Screen

Ultra-realistic visuals

To deliver the ultimate visual experiences, ZenBook 3 Deluxe harnesses the power of exclusive ASUS display technologies, with optimized hardware and software components combined to deliver the best possible imagery. The wide 100% sRGB color gamut and TV-grade 1000:1 contrast ratio ensure more-vivid, more-lifelike colors, and ASUS Splendid technology fine-tunes display parameters to ensure superb color accuracy while also providing automatic optimization for any kind of image. ASUS Tru2life Video is a remarkable real-time video enhancement technology that optimizes the appearance of every pixel in every video frame, delivering a 200% contrast improvement and pin-point sharpness.

Performance

Unprecedented performance

ZenBook 3 Deluxe is built to deliver unprecedented performance, using only carefully selected, best-in-class components. These include the latest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor; up to 16GB of 2133MHz ultra-fast, power-saving LPDDR3 memory; an up to 1TB PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD that is 3 times faster than SATA SSDs; and the latest Thunderbolt™ 3-enabled USB-C™ ports for up to 40 Gbps data transfers, dual 4K UHD external displays or external graphics dock support. So there’s no need to worry about what you can or can’t do with ZenBook 3 Deluxe — with this kind of power the sky’s the limit!

Thunderbolt™ 3

For unlimited possibilities

ZenBook 3 Deluxe has two USB-C ports that incorporate the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 technology for versatile, ultra-fast connections. Thunderbolt™ 3 supports data transfers at up to 40 Gbps, which is twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt™ 2 and 8 times faster than USB 3.0. The Thunderbolt™ 3-enabled USB-C ports also support power delivery. Additionally, Thunderbolt™ 3 delivers enhanced graphics options to improve productivity, with support for dual 4K UHD external displays. With Thunderbolt™ 3, your imagination is the limit.

Thermal System

The coolest of cool

The challenge in designing a fast, ultra-thin laptop boils down to basic physics. To prevent the laptop from getting too hot, warm air inside needs to be expelled as quickly as possible. For the mighty Intel® Core™ i7 processor in ZenBook 3 Deluxe ASUS engineers had to invent a brand-new cooling system using state-of-the-art components, including a liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller that’s just 0.3mm thick and a copper-alloy heat pipe with walls that are a mere 0.1mm thick. This innovative cooling system is just 3mm high, and the warm air from the interior is gently expelled via hidden vents in the hinge. The overall design allows for efficient, serenely quiet cooling— even under full loads.

Battery

All-day battery, charged in minutes

A laptop as beautiful and powerful as ZenBook 3 Deluxe deserves nothing less than all-day battery life. To achieve the remarkable up-to-9-hour battery life of the ZenBook 3 Deluxe, we designed a special high-capacity 46Wh lithium-polymer battery, shaped to fit precisely into an incredibly thin profile. We also added fast-charge technology that allows charges of up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.

Ubiquity

Mobility without bounds

We live in a wireless world, and ZenBook 3 Deluxe is fully equipped to give you the very best connection — anywhere. It features the latest power-efficient Bluetooth® 4.1 and dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, which is more reliable and up to 6 times* faster than the previous-generation 802.11n. And with exclusive ASUS software you can create your own personal data cloud for fast, secure and convenient access to all of your files, wherever they’re stored.

Keyboard and Touchpad

No-compromise productivity

The best ultraportable laptop deserves an exceptional keyboard. With ZenBook 3 Deluxe, the keyboard was engineered into the design from the start. Its full-size backlit keyboard has impressive 1.2mm key travel, making typing more comfortable and more accurate. ZenBook 3 Deluxe also includes a precision touchpad that’s cleverly engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for smooth control, and incorporating palm-rejection technology, multi-touch gestures and handwriting support.

Fingerprint Sensor

One-touch access with Windows Hello

Accessing your ZenBook 3 Deluxe couldn’t be easier or more secure, thanks to Windows Hello technology and the fingerprint sensor built into the touchpad. Now there’s no need to type in your password every time to log in — a single touch is all it takes!

SonicMaster Premium

Sound that will amaze you

To give ZenBook 3 Deluxe unsurpassed audio capabilities, the ASUS Golden Ear team cooperated with audio specialists Harman Kardon to produce the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster Premium audio technology. The results are astonishing. ZenBook 3 Deluxe has an array of four separate high-quality speakers designed to deliver true surround-sound that envelops you with cinema-quality audio. A special four-channel smart amplifier ensures maximum volume with zero distortion, for powerful, clear sound. Once you’ve tried it, we think you’ll agree — ZenBook 3 Deluxe delivers the most incredible sound you’ve ever heard on an ultra-slim laptop!
